Last night was the finale of the 2016 Euro Football Cup but before we all go back to our normal lives, let’s meet the man of the hour and the reason why most French supporters are waking up with a very bad hangover on this Monday morning.
The game was at 0-0, until a Portuguese player opened the score in the 109th minute with a strike that no one really saw coming. Least of all Lloris.
If you did’t quite believe that, here it is again.
Meet Éder, the 28 year-old who plays as a forward for Lille OSC, a French club (the irony).
Here is what there is to know about the man who earned Portugal its first international tournament title.
Yes, that is his full name.
And moved to Portugal as a child. He eventually decided to represent Portugal in his international career.
Éder spent most of Euro 2016 on the bench. Looks like everyone is reevaluating him now.
The first one was during a friendly game against Italy in June 2015.
After his heroic moment, Eder confided that Ronaldo had predicted his goal. A bromance was born last night.
